We visited on off-season. Half mile walk through the woods on a groomed path to get to the swamp. There is a board walk through the actual swamp. The swamp has an other-worldy feel to it that is mesmerizing and stunning. The still pools of...More

Very pleasant, non-strenuous 1-3 mile walk. Amazing inland swamp. Every time we go to Wellfleet, we take a walk on the white cedar swamp trail.

An absolute gem! Make sure to stop at the Visitor's Center to check on ranger led tours and talks. This place is magical!

Nice habitat, but bring repellent and expect some trail portions to be muddy. The actual swamp is quite attractive.

This is an easy walk with a really nice boardwalk through the swamp. Maybe fall is not the best time? Still enjoyed it and the friendly Blue Jay! Good for kids and all ages.

This trail doesn't start off looking like much, but once it gets into the swamp area it really feels like you have entered a different area. Very pretty. Easy walk for pretty much any age.

Great easy hike, for adults or kids, at the National Seashore. Feels like another world once you hit the swamp area. Usually not crowded.
